Associating a USER DEFINED language with a filetype in notepad++


February 2019

So I know there have been questions regarding association with filetypes, but I can't find any about custom syntax highlighting. I have a user-defined language I use for TF2 scripting. It shows up in the drop down under "Define your Language" but not in the list in the style configurator window.

Any help would be appreciated!

EDIT: if you're going to downvote, would you mind at least showing me to where this has already been asked?

Navigate back to Language->Define your language...
and select your custom style - a new TextBox Ext.: will appear to the right: Custom style selected

You might have missed this, because User Define Language is selected by default - so the TextBox is hidden initially:

Default selection
